  1. Debbie

    There is no pic that can capture the beauty of landscapes in this tour, If you like true unspoiled nature trips, this is a must choice. Also, good service from Akanan Amazing Adventures. A bit hard moving around from each destination, but totally worth it. I also liked the small lodges in Gran Roque so you end in a place for true relax… Its like REALLY getting away for a few days!

  2. Gabriela Di Benedictis

    Escribo para agradecer formalmente la planificación de nuestras vacaciones, hicieron de cada detalle una experiencia perfecta, tanto la organización de los Roques como la de Canaima fue impecable.
    Un abrazo y extiende mi agradecimiento a todo tu equipo ya que lo que hacen es digno de admirar,
